’80s Horror Takes Final Journey With In Search Of Darkness Part III

In Search of Darkness: Part III is the final chapter in the worldwide 1980s horror documentary In Search of Darkness saga from CREATORVC, and it is available to the public for a limited-time membership sale from October 6th through midnight on October 31st (Halloween) at 80sHorrorDoc.com. Read on for more details, including the movie trailer.

Building on the momentum of two celebrated superdocs and high demand from fans for more,  In Search of Darkness: Part III promises to offer another 4+ hours of deeper cuts and to highlight the “underbelly” of ‘80s horror movies. This final chapter in the superdoc saga moves beyond the focus of  In Search of Darkness: Part I & II, paying special attention to the straight-to-VHS era and championing the titles historically found at the very bottom of the video rental shelf. 

Returning cast members include Robert Englund, Linnea Quigley, Tom Savini, Cassandra Peterson, Lloyd Kaufman, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Geretta Geretta, Doug Bradley, John Carpenter, and many more In Search of Darkness staples. New faces to the series include Adrienne Barbeau, Dee Wallace, Julie Brown, Gene Simmons, and more to be announced.

Supporters of this membership drive for In Search of Darkness: Part III will not only help enable the film production for this final chapter, but will also become members of an exclusive Video Club — in honor of the programs from the bygone video store days — and be welcomed to participate  an unique co-curating experience that will decide the films and themes featured in the documentary. 

In Search of Darkness: Part III is executive-produced by Robin Block and written/directed by David Weiner.

According to In Search of Darkness: Part III writer/director David Weiner, “When we completed In Search of Darkness: Part II, I was afraid that we might have hammered the final nail into the ‘80s horror coffin. But the overwhelming encouragement and enthusiasm from fans for even more exploration and discussion of ‘80s horror goodness fills me with joy. There is an almost never-ending supply of dark and quirky films to mine from the dusty bottom shelves of our collective basement video stores. And this final, extended celebration of the era in In Search of Darkness: Part III may be the most nostalgic and heartfelt yet.”
